Had a quick trip to New Caledonia last week on business, seriously it was for work (honest!). Here’s the local met office in Noumea to prove it,
The hotel we stayed in shared a nice big pool with a somewhat flasher hotel right next door, but the accommodation was comfortable and air conditioned. Just two nights in Noumea with a full day in the office didn’t leave much time for sightseeing. We did manage a couple of good meals however, including a nice crab curry and Italian pizza for me.
Tip for travelling in foreign countries: figure out the currency first! Turns out our first meal was rather pricey at 10,000 XPF for two, or around NZ$166. The bottled beer at NZ$13 a pop probably didn’t help!
